    • Having been convicted of Larceny, Agnes was dispatched aboard the convict ship "Mary Anne" finally arriving in New South Wales on 19 January 1816. She was one of 103 female convict prisoners.

      Following conviction, prisoners may have first been taken to Newgate prison, London where they would have joined women who had come from counties throughout England and Scotland including Somerset, Devon, Lancaster, Surrey, Norfolk, Chester, Berkshire, Cumberland and Glasgow.
      In the Deal shipping news dated 18th July it was reported that the ship 'Mary Anne' had come down the river to Deal in preparation for leaving for New South Wales.

      The transfer of female prisoners from Newgate to the convict ships was described by Elizabeth Fry.........
      Frequently, batches of female convicts were despatched to New South Wales, and, according to the custom at Newgate, departure was preceded by total disregard of order. Windows, furniture, clothing all were wantonly destroyed; while the procession from the prison to the convict ship was one of brutal, debasing riot. The convicts were conveyed to Deptford, in open wagons, accompanied by the rabble and scum of the populace. These crowds follow the wagons, shouting to the prisoners, defying all regulations, and inciting them to more defiance of rules. Some of the convicts were laden with irons; others were chained together by twos.
